A diatom from a subbottom depth of approximately 260 m.

While Bernd is struggling to get the cores of Hole 1B and 1C into Hungary, drilling operations and logging of the cores in the lab at Hole 1D are going on and we are at a sediment depth of 70 m again. We are nevertheless optimistic that the first load of cores will arrive in Cologne on Monday. Today the 1000 m marker of total depth drilled was reached. Although due to ongoing problems with the wireline coring had to be slowed down. Speaking of weather conditions here at Ohrid, today was the first day where we considered to go swimming in the lake. Unfortunately only the air temperature is high enough to do so.
